    1. 1
      Heat oven to 375 degrees. Butter 8-inch round cake pan, 1-1/2 inches deep.
    2. 2
      Prepare chocolate cake: beat butter in mixer bowl until light. Add sugar; beat until smooth. Sift flour, baking powder, and cocoa together. Add half to butter mixture and blend. Mix in milk, then remaining flour mixture. Add egg and mix until smooth, about 3 minutes.
    3. 3
      Pour batter into prepared pan and bake until top springs back when lightly touched, 30-35 minutes. Let cool completely in pan on wire rack.
    4. 4
      Prepare chocolate glaze: melt chocolate and butter in top of double boiler over hot water. Remove pan from water and stir until chocolate mixture is warm, not hot.
    5. 5
